Like the Peepal tree which takes root and dismantles existing structures, we subvert the cultural status-quo to foster compassion and good work.

We are humans helping animals.

About us

Who we are

We are a group of people with one goal; doing good work. It's our understanding that physical pain is objectively bad. So for us, helping alleviate physical pain is an objective good, especially for those who can't help themselves.

Peepal Farm is a stray animal rescue, a vegan organic farm, and a low impact farmstay. It is the home we have built in the Himalayan Foothills to accommodate recovering injured stray animals, people who want to do good work, and an organic garden to provide a little bit for all of us.

Instead of putting in a swimming pool, we built a cow shed. Instead of a media room, we have a clinic. Instead of having master bedrooms, we made rooms for those who want to come here and experience a simple, sustainable, and purposeful life.

Philosophy

We believe that every action for survival has a suffering footprint, especially any act of consumption. So, we believe in mindful consumption, and making our survival purposeful by doing good work, which for us is alleviating physical pain.

Vision

To alleviate animal suffering and eradicate the human behaviors that cause it.

Strategy

Ultimately, the yardstick for gauging the impact of our work, is number of animals helped. After working in Auroville, and Delhi we'd realized that scaling infrastructure is not the optimum way to increase that impact. We then came up with the strategy of doing work in a way where we can involve and inspire.
